    Absolutely baseless article. No one tries to even understand how access controlled expressways work.
    Traveling at 100-120 kmph is not something new in the country. People do it ever since 4 lane highways came to existence.

    But the problem is cross traffic – as you travel from Chennai to Ulundurpet or Bangalore to Salem, you run into cross traffic almost every 0.5km and you will have pedestrians mindlessly crossing the highway at their will. This is one reason why India loses 1.5 lakh people dying in road accidents every single year.

    With access controlled multi lane expressway, you can maintain a constant speed, reduced breaking, increased fuel efficiency, reduced carbon emission.

    If you see vehicle specifications in developed countries, you will see mileage specs mentioned as 21 mph city, 34 mph highway. That is a significant difference and is achieved because of all the benefits access controlled expressways have to offer.

    Making existing highways like this is next to impossible due to the continued population, settlements and commercial/residential establishments all along the highway.

    இதுக்கெல்லாம் காரணம் கருணாநிதிதான். அவர் 150 வருடங்களுக்கு முன்பே இந்த மாதிரி செய்து இருக்கிறாரே.

    I don’t know why you people are writing these type of articles and where do you get the details and references. Salem 8 lane doesn’t ask you to pay on all 8 toll gates. It is designed in a different way so you have to pay only on exit. If you don’t need Salem 8 way, let me know what it should be done to reduce traffic. From Chennai to Ulundhurpettai, it is very difficult to drive and time-consuming. Definitely better road is needed. I agree that agri lands and forest lands will be acquired based on the present value. Right now guideline value is equal to the sale value, so everyone will get the amount they need. China has grown this much with higher population only because they have good connectivity from end to end in their country. Every year in TamilNadu there are 4 lac graduates coming to the market. Where can they get jobs? If you people start criticizing and stopping any new industry, then robbery will be the only business. Protest to have an industry with environmental standards. Protest to have an industry to give maximum job opportunities to local residents. If Piyush is a good environmentalist, just let me know how he is getting this much huge funds. You people will be soon identified and will be penalised.
